  • Oh, I absolutely adore this place! I've been going to Pine Grove every Summer and Fall for the past 10 years and it just keeps getting more and more beautiful. If you're going to Fuller Lake on a super hot day, the beach can be a bit crowded, but not to the point where you can't enjoy floating around on a tube in the water. They do a great job of keeping everything clean up there as well! If you're just going up to Pine Grove to hike or explore, it's awesome and there's a ton of trails that are good for both walking and biking. I love to bring my dog here to explore the hidden paths throughout the gorgeous forests and swim in the creek. So peaceful. Easily some of the most beautiful scenery Pennsylvania has to offer. Breath-taking!
  • Went camping here Easter weekend, which was the first weekend of the season. It was clean and well kept. The campground hosts were nice, restrooms were clean, heated and well stocked. We enjoyed some nice hikes on the creek trail and some other trails within walking distance of our camper. There are some things to consider. This place has electric but no water hookups, so you must fill your tanks on the way in, but there is a dump station. It was a holiday weekend. The store was not open yet for the season and the park office was closed on Sunday.
  • Love this. Places like these always make me feel so blessed. So grateful we have access to beautiful parks like this without any cost. Life is good when you get outside.
  • Stayed at the Ironmasters Mansion hostel, highly recommended. Appalachian Trail Museum is worth a look, also.
  • I absolutely love it. It's beautiful and has hiking trails as well as some lakes to fish.
